Childbirth Education Classes

Mom 1

Childbirth Education Classes:

We currently offer a 3 part class once a month on weekday evenings from 6 – 9 pm. Dates are set several weeks in advance. We have space for 4 expectant mothers and one birth support person to attend, with priority given to VPC clients.


Classes discuss late pregnancy changes, labour and birth, understanding birth interventions, postpartum changes, healing and breastfeeding.

For the labour support person:

These classes are designed to teach families about normal labour and birth, how to cope during labour, and how to support Mom during labour. Any support person is welcome (i.e. Mom’s partner, mother, best friend, Doula, etc.).



These classes are available to individuals with limited financial resources who cannot afford to attend other classes available in the community.  Eligibility is based on the honor system as we do not require proof of income or assess anyone’s eligibility.


There is a $10 fee (to cover material costs) for our 2 part class and payment must be received 1 week in advance to hold a space. Unfortunately, babysitting for older siblings is not available.

Information & Registration:

Clients interested in the class may contact the Centre directly by sending an email to or by phoning us at 250-380-6883.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

“I really enjoyed the information in the class and the ability to ask questions. The instructor is very knowledgeable.”
